AJ Foyt Racing endured a difficult race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday as Carlos Munoz started the race from 18th place and finished the race in 15th place and speaking following the race he commented by saying:
Another really hard race, really. Our weekend started okay and then got worse. I’m not really happy. Grip-wise, we just really lacked grip. It’s a shame. Hopefully, we turn it around. Now focusing on the Indy 500, we’ll see how our package is, but we are suffering. There’s work that lies ahead so we just need to continue working hard.
Conor Daly in the No.4 ABC Supply Co Chevrolet started the race from 15th place and had a great battle with his room mate James Hinchcliffe during the race and came home in 17th place and speaking following the race, Daly commented by saying:
I was really happy with our start and first stint, the car felt OK. I was able to fight with Hinch (James Hinchcliffe) and Spencer (Pigot) and some guys up there, but I think we ran into a problem with the brakes a little bit after the first stint. Seemed to start glazing them a little bit so it was difficult to stop. And then for some reason we stalled in the pits. We’ve struggled getting out of the pits all weekend so, in the end I should be able to recognize that, but I have no idea why we were having that issue so that was a shame. That really set us back and then from then on it was just damage control. We just kept losing the brakes a little bit. On reds, the car was good but on blacks we didn’t have enough, on blacks we were too far off.
